It’s a rare local park that offers lush wilderness abutting a sweet semicircle of beach, all tucked into a quiet lakeside neighborhood. But that’s what you’ll get on a visit to Orion O. Denny Park, informally known as Denny Park, and named for the son of Arthur Denny, one of Seattle’s first settlers. Set in Kirkland’s Finn Hill area, the park makes a good kayak launch site or picnic spot. But even if you’re here to dip your toes in Lake Washington, you won’t want to miss the forested ravine across the street, where a couple miles of trail pass by a cool, clear salmon stream and beneath huge trees where bald eagles and barred owls nest.
